Perry Ellis International has inked an agreement with MRH Sparotica Groupé to introduce a collection of men's apparel, accessories and other products under the Farah brand in Greater China.

“The new collection will launch in department stores, free standing stores and specialty stores as well as online with third party ecommerce platforms such as Tmall,” a Perry Ellis press release stated.

According to Perry Ellis, the Farah brand is rooted in rich heritage and bolstered by street credibility, leverages creative brand ambassadors from art, music and modern culture to drive success.

“These extraordinary individuals are empowered to become product developers, storytellers and educators inspiring Millennials,” the apparel marketer said.

“For fashion-minded hipsters in East London and international artists alike, the name Farah represents a melding of bold style and solid quality,” it added.

Perry Ellis CEO George Feldenkreis said, “This is our first agreement for Farah in Greater China and represents a major step in the expansion of the brand outside of the United Kingdom and Europe.”

“We look forward to working with MRH as we continue to extend the reach of our global brands to drive further growth and profitability,” Feldenkreis too added.

CEO at MRH Richard Kisembo also said, “The partnership with Farah adds to our portfolio, a brand that will resonate well with the Millennial 'Post 80's' generations in China.”

“Over the past few years, Farah has achieved powerful growth in the UK and international markets and we are profoundly confident in the impact it can make in China,” he stated.

“We believe in brands that make emotional connections with consumers, and Farah will distinctly stand out for its modern classics,” Kisembo informed.
